Finished the weekly challenges.

WTC 900 race with the Audi R18 - Won race without stopping on RM tires. Set fuel to FM4 and switched to FM6 on the last lap for good measure.

European Clubman Cup 600 ... ( laughs in Porsche Strassenversion ) "Suggested" PP... pffft

Parts ticket - Ceramic brake kit for the CMC Chevy Nova ( that I have absolutely NO use for )
Car ticket - the Mitsubishi Concept XR :banghead: .... FML
 
On the GTP account, I did the Weekly Challenges as such:
  • High Speed Ring Japanese FR Challenge in 3:14 (as rain came in) with a stock 2015 Subaru BRZ S, and the 2021 Subaru BRZ S closing rapidly
  • Tokyo Lightweight K-Cup in 6:46 with a 1991 Honda Beat tuned to the max
  • Red Bull Ring Special Event in 8:02 with a stock 2013 Volvo V40 T5 R-Design on a clean last-corner dive-bomb
  • Nurburgring European Clubman Cup in 14:45 with a stock 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and Gallo starting his cheater Giulia GTAm on pole
  • Nurburgring WTC 900 in 19:13 with a stock 2016 Lexus RC F GT500
That is the worst guaranteed-money non-CRB Cr./hour and 2nd-worst CRB Cr./hour return of the 30 Weekly Challenges, ahead of only November 2023 Week 2. The parts Wheel of Despair gave a stage 5 weight reduction for a car that already has it installed (completely worthless), the car ticket gave a Dodge SRT Tomahawk GTS-R (hung onto for tuning purposes), and the 4-star workout Wheel of Despair gave the low-showing 30,000 Cr.

It turned out to be too late to start a Plus run.
I never saw rain during the FR Challenge but did see it on lap 2 of the Clubman Cup (which I also drove a Giulla GTAm). You mentioned a "stock 2016 Lexus RC F GT500", do you ever modify your GR4, GR3, GR2 or GR1 cars? I never have and was just wondering if anyone ever does.
 
I bought five of the new GT500 NSX. Then ran the Le Mans 700PP race with some weight and engine nerfing to get to 700pp. Won with ease. This car is very fast.

Rain doesn't always come, but the weather is variable at the High Speed Ring FR Challenge. As for modding the Gr.# cars, except for tires (necessary for the Sarthe and Spa grinds, and a couple of other events with weather) and very occasionally the transmission and downforce, no. I do have a couple of Gr.B builds for the Sarthe grind.
 
Working on a Lemans 700 build for the Volvo 240. My best result so far is 2nd place 8s behind, should have been a win but slipped on some damp track.

Also mildly annoyed that the Volvo doesn't get anti-lag.

Today's session (so far) on the new account saw me entering a variety of events. I started the session with two entries into the Sunday Cup Classic at Tsukuba. One with the 2016 Renault Clio, that I got from the B licenses, and the other race with the '56 356/A Coupe. After that I decided to try my hand at two of the new events added in the recent updates. First was the European race at Kyoto, which saw me driving the V40 Volvo for an easy position of 1st. The second race was the Japanese event at Alsace. I wasn't quite sure what car to enter in the latter event so I defaulted to the trusty Tommi Makinen Evo for a relatively easy podium.

That all gained me enough mileage to gain today's ticket. Another 4*, but this time it had rewarded me the G70 Genesis in "Racing Grey" color. I'm bit undecided what event to take the G70 to since there aren't many events South Korean cars can enter at this current stage in the game.

After I did all that, I decided to buy the Alpine A110 '72, even though I really dislike the way this car drives I'm operating on a sort of 'buy it, use it' mentality so I have no doubt I will eventually actively seek out a couple of events to enter with this Alpine.

So I was in a race where the person was on occasion deliberately knocking people off. Myself I was just pushed so no big deal but P1 was punted by him after passing me. At the end of the race I said he was a Dirty Driver for what he was doing, his comment to me was " REPORTADO", guess what I received a few hours later from Sony Playstation. Breach of "Code of Content" can some one just falsely accuse another ? idk And yes I know when I am trying to go up in DR I must race against lower SR rating drivers, but seriously how do I get the code of Conduct removed from my account? anybody know if it's worth the time ? Yes the flag is from Uruguay.

I did the 1st race in the weekly challenge. I didn't have a lot of time as I stopped by our place to pickup some clothes. I knew I could get a quick race before my wife called to make sure I didn't get lost or anything so I used a swapped GR86 to OP the race.
 
Did some cool bit and bobs - Daily Race was a good result manged to get 7th starting from 12th.
FInished some more weekly races need to buy the volvo v40 to do the limited event.
Had a blast at the new race for the NSX at Circuit de Sainte-Croix Layout A, never really raced thsi variatino and foudn it very cool to race in with the NSX against the other GR.3 cars.
Improved my laptimes at Tsukuba and Nurburg so all good!

My GT7 today has been heavily German and very Porsche bias. 911 TT, two laps of the Nordschlief that improved the TT by 9 seconds in total, still away off silver I'm just not carrying any real speed, don't feel secure in this car at all, then took a Porsche Cayman GT4 special (swapped and pimped) back to the Nurburg for the European Challenge, what a difference, 6:54 clean on lap2 and sub 14 combined on the two laps given I've done less than 15 miles in this car prior to today I'm really happy in this car. I took the civic out for a further go..... 3laps no time improvement. Wheel gave me a Citroen invite, :( some times life is just full of lemons.
 
On the GTP account, after buying a 1995 Honda Integra for engine purposes, I struggled through a replay of Colorado Springs. The Pick-up Truck Race, in a Toyota Tundra with a custom transmission and dirt tires, wasn't too bad at 4:59. The Dirt Champions was something else; it took many resets to get a very-dirty win in 4:23 with the Toyota 86 Gr.B.

The all-cash 4-star Wheel of Despair continued the disappointment, giving the middle fing...er...showing, yet lowest-possible, 10,000 Cr. I'm shocked it wasn't a 3-star bearing a semi-racing muffler.

I had enough, especially considering the Weekly Challenges are the worst investment, so I once again skipped the Plus account.
 
(I’m new on this website)
Yesterday I did time trial at monta and tried a few races outside of the menu book. Anybody has advice for menu book N*40 pls 🙏

Today, at Circuit de la Sarthe, I improved the lap record set by the Ferrari 330 by 20 seconds with the GTR GT-500. The GT-500 99' slips a little in corners, but with the 600 - 700 - 800 pp settings of this car, I reduce the need for 3 cars to one car. I'm still at 784 pp for 800 pp, but I will continue to improve. let see how is it going to be. Can you recommend me a vehicle that sticks to the road even though the GR3 and GR4 are not fast? ??

You probably already have the Toyota GAZOO racing 2019 concept GR.4 , try it it’s really good. I tuned it and now it has 554hp for 300kph top speed and stays on the floor unlike a certain VGT…..

Group 3 Cars I would say my most used is a NiSMO GTR to be fair though all the cars have similar capabilities it's a case of what works for you.
 
Decided to use up one of my many VR38 engines I had in my stockpile by creating a SSRX Clubman+ R32 Nismo build. I was lucky enough to win an engine from the 6* daily workout ticket, only issue was that it was ANOTHER VR38! 🤣
 
Reporting from yesterday playthrough as this was the first time in weeks (if not months) that I actually played for well over 4 hrs which I'm happy to say was fairly productive.

  • Golded the Civic/Tsukuba TT with a 1.12.7xx
  • Completed the weekly challenges
  • Bought some cars from brand central as I work my way through collecting all the cars.
  • Worked my way through most of the Missions only have a couple left from Gone with the Wind and all the endurance challenges from The Human Comedy left to do.
